Mahindra & Mahindra has launched its new pickup, the Genio. With the launch of the Genio, M&M is going to change the face of the pick-up industry in India. The Genio single-cab pick-up will be the second product after Maxximo that will be rolled out of Mahindra’s new Chakan facility. The pickup has been developed on the chassis of Mahindra Xylo MPV. The new Genio pickup is equipped with the same mDi CRDe motor from the Xylo, but in a detuned state. The engine now produces 75bhp, 20bhp less than the Xylo D2, while the max torque remains identical at 220 Nm. The new pickup has a modern style, which should be the new step in Indian commercial vehicles design. Payload capacity is 1250 kg. The modern independent front suspension enhances driving comfort as well as the Genio's ability to tackle rough terrain. At 80.5 cubic feet, the Genio gives the driver and co-driver ample space to make long drives easy.
